Will, the tech, spent time running anti virus and setting the bios on my computer. He did a great job. Thanks, Will. Marcia
Ron was efficient and very professional. He was able to clean my laptop of viruses and return the laptop to me within 2 days. I would definately recommend him and I will use his services again.
Sean fixed my mother's computer. She had clicked on something she shouldn't have and had a really bad virus infiltrate her computer. He also removed some additional malware. Sean was also kind enough to install a virus protection program to her computer as well. He was very patient and kind throughout the entire process. I really appreciated his professionalism.
Performed basic duties, virus check, system clean, etc. Mostly pc work and limited mac work performed. Suggested free software or virus checks and disk analysis. Satisfied.
Israel cleaned my PC and removed 3 malwares, also removed many unnecessary programs. Retrieved my "missing" Favorites list. Comp is running faster and I'm sure more efficiently. Very satisfied with his service. Would recommend him for your PC job.
Ray Beckham has made several house calls to fix my computers. He mitigated two viruses and assisted on setting up a new desktop. When you can't figure it out yourself, Ray will fix it corectly.
I've had problems with my PC locking up or being completely down caused by virus, hardware and software issues. It doesn't really matter with Andre because he's able to prove to me that he can fix any issues in a quick and efficient manner. I can always call him to ask any questions and he's more than happy to help. He definitely knows his computers.
My laptop fan stopped working and the casing of my laptop was coming apart around the hinges. After looking at several shops in the area, I found Rafael on Thumbtack. He notified me that he would be willing to come to my apartment and diagnose the problem for no charge. He was very patient and informative as he opened up the computer to further investigate my issues. Once the computer was opened we discovered that a piece of the casing was stuck in the fan and that part was easily fixed by removing it. As for the casing, he let me know that I would need to replace it and gave me several tips for finding the best prices for a replacement case. Once the case was ordered, he returned, assembled the computer back together, and everything is running smoothly once again. I found Rafael to be very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable about electronics. He was also quick to respond to any questions that I had via text message about my laptop. I highly recommend his services to anyone with computer issues and will go to him if any issues arise in the future.
Todd is very attentive to detail, and a delight to work with. He is knowledgeable in IT and VOIP. He can fix virus issues, broken screens, and any other IT related issue.
Chris did a OS install, installed an auto back up system to my 2nd hard drive, hardware check and a basic clean up on my very old XP system..... He did sell me an older Dell Tower which he tested as 'super fast' but I have found this is not the case. It is frustrating as he said he would clean up XP and get this thing running and it would be good for a few more years. It's definitely slower than my previous tower. I may be mistaken but I think for the work he had to do 8 days was stretching it.... That he was willing to come to my home was great -he also did a remote change on my system which was easy for us both. Also, if I encounter any problems or issues he is cool enough to let me contact him about anything and step up to any issue with no charge. It is somewhat of a challenge to contact and get a response from him in a timely manner. He is friendly and flexible. He seems super busy so slowing down a bit to focus would be good! Thanks Chris !
If your looking to have your laptop repaired, iTechChimp is an excellent choice! I have a 7 year old Dell XPS Studio 1647 Laptop that I had customized with a failed hard drive. And, yes, I inexplicably let it over heat (my bad)! Circumstance such as they are, I contacted several local repair shops (experts?), as well as, Dell. I would have stuck with Dell service; however, my service warranty expired, and, frankly ... there current customer service is lacking in communication--which goes without saying (humm). After a week of deliberation, I chose iTechChimp. The determining factor was their technician, Sam, for his expertise and communication skills. I experienced a most pleasant heuristic process in concluding repairs. Needless to say, my laptop was repaired the same day I brought it in, having replaced my hard drive, completion of OS, and driver installations ... all within 3 hours. After several days had past, I ran into an issue with an inadvertent download of a serious spyware that propagated to no end ... scary and very stupid! Called Sam, he suggested Hitman Pro and SuperAntiSpyware, Further research led me to install a Junkware Removal Tool and the current version of Malwarebytes ... what a relief and lesson learned! Bottomline, (in my former line of business), the truth is in the numbers -- iTechChimp's repair cost were more than reasonable and their service stellar. Most of all, Sam's competence and proficiency inspired me to write this review. Thank you Sam! I highly recommend iTechChimp with one advise, when utilizing GPS direction, ensure you type in Belmont address (SMILE).
Brian is very tech savvy and helpful, not to mention easy to work with. My computer is now virus free and faster than ever, and I'll be giving him a call if I ever have any more troubles. thanks for the help, I'm going to recommend you to all of my friends!
Good start in initial services rendered - anti-virus software and website creation.
Joe Loew recently fixed my computer. I thought it was hopeless and was wary of even trying to fix it. Joe was so full of information and made me feel at ease about having my computer checked. He fixed my computer faster than I thought it would be fixed. It's working great and I will definitely be going to him for all my computer issues. Thank you so much Joe.
so I had a virus on my computer I called david within 3 hours of calling him my virus was gone my computer was working much faster I was very impressed I'm very grateful to know that he was able to help me remotely I live in San Jose he was in Sacramento thank you very much for your help and I would recommend anyone that has computer problems to allow david to fix it
When I had a virus on my computer, he explained to me multiple ways that viruses can get onto a computer and how to prevent that from happening. He got rid of the virus I had and installed different anti-virus programs that would protect my computer in the future. All in all I had a very good experience working with him and my computer is still protected!
My laptop had too many viruses and I couldn't use it for anything. I needed a quick fix. I came to Lamin and he had my computer ready to be picked up the same day! It came back working like new!!! I am so happy he was able to fix it. It's been two months now and I haven't had an issue!! He did an excellent job!!
I highly recommend QPSTechs. His price was less than half of Apple's price to replace a shattered screen on our iphone. His communication via text was quick. He is conveniently located just off the freeway and across from a large shopping center. We dropped off the phone, went to dinner and returned an hour later to pick it up--good as new. I would contact him again for any future computer or phone repair or virus problems. Also glad to have discovered thumbtack.com. Will also return for future service needs. Michele
